I am almost finished my blossom shawl from mag knits. I decided on Wednesday that I wanted to wear it out to dinner on Saturday, so I have been knitting as fast as I can (not very) ever since. I now as of today only have one repeat left to go and then the 3 rows of garter and cast off. so it looks like it might be achievable. the  only problems is that i think it makes DH cross as I have to focus to do lace and that doesn’t make me a very interesting companion. 

i think i might stop knitting for the rest of the weekend after this is done, I don’t think it is very good for my posture….

Well I think that I might have stepped over the line from:

someone who also knits

to

A Knitter!

For my birthday, My husband gave me a set of knitpicks needles and two of my friends also gave me needles, and a friend who is about to go overseas has offered to bring back yarn.

I think knitting may be now a part of my identity….

Well the trip away was good but all the sitting in the car put my neck out, which I think is going to hamper my knitting…

here are the sock photos:

the Koigu sock complete, I have to cast on the second one.

The sock I am calling the Lego sock cause that’s what the colours remind me of.

Work is so draining at the moment, i cant think about knitting. Looking for the 10% good, the plain stockinette of my  socks is just perfect, so some sock progress is being made.
